South Sudan rivals due for peace talks


The main opposing sides in South Sudan’s civil war are due to meet in the capital Juba to agree on details for a joint transitional government, which is meant to be formed on Saturday.

Two deadlines have already been missed.

Discussions will focus on security arrangements and the sharing of power in a new administration.

Former rebel leader Riek Machar arrived in South Sudan on Monday ahead of the latest talks with President Salva Kiir.
